IABC Utah is pleased to welcome Christine Osborne, Content Strategist and Communications Specialist at the Utah Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), as guest speaker for our February Lunch and Learn event on Tuesday, February 21, 2017 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at USANA Health Sciences in Salt Lake City.
Christine will share her experiences in career diversification.
Christine came into the communications world in a non-traditional way—through music. After finishing her Master of Music at USC, Christine accepted a position with the Utah Symphony as a musician. For 15 of her nearly 26 years with the Symphony, Christine served as media spokesperson for the musicians and discovered a growing interest in the communications profession.
Six years ago, Christine decided a career change was in order. She did a brief stint in the Governor’s Office before moving to the communications office at DEQ. Since arriving at DEQ, she has served as acting executive director of the Utah Clean Air Partnership (UCAIR), earned her Master’s degree in Strategic Communication from Westminster College, and received her accreditation in public relations (APR).
Christine is an adjunct professor at Westminster College specializing in Integrated Marketing Communication (IMC) and has been in her current position with DEQ for over five years.
